Rated 5 out of 5 by Pammy5551 L.L.Bean fleece robes are the BEST!
L.L. Bean fleece robes, zip or wrap front, are the BEST robes on the market. They hold up for years of wear; I wash mine in cold water, and hang to dry. These robes are soft. SO warm and very comfortable. I have two, one zip front and a wrap front and look forward to many more years of wear. If you need a new fleece robe, buy it at L.L. Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jan06 Extremely warm robe and beautiful color
This robe is beautiful - soft, warm, ankle length (and I'm 5'7"), roomy and oh-so-comfortable. However, it's actually too warm for me. I tried it for six weeks and kept finding that I had to take it off every 20 minutes or so because I was just way too warm! I'd then get very chilly, put it back on, only to find that I'd be pulling it off again because it was TOO warm. I'm now back to my old worn out terry cloth robe - its thick, warm, but not too warm, and getting very shabby, but at least I'm not sweating in it. So - if you are cold and need warmth, you will probably love this robe. However if you aren't that cold, you might prefer something not quite so warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PacificNorthwester So glad I upgraded!
I finally got rid of my old LL Bean fleece robe that has seen better days for this new version-and I just love it! It's much softer and more comfy than my old one and an absolute delight on a chilly Canadian winter morning. The only caveat is length; I am not short (5 foot 8) but even as the XL is the right size for me in other ways, this is one REALLY long robe-even at my height, I have to hold it up for example to go up the stairs lest I trip -which makes me wonder who the Amazonian "models" were for this bathrobe! :) Looks like a trip to the tailor for a hem is in order...but other than that, it's perfect.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AuntDelilah Previously worn item?
This is the second of these robes I have ordered. Last year the first one was great. I was very disappointed this year. The robe was not nicely folded like my first one was. It was unfolded and crammed in the plastic bag and the tissue paper was out of place and fell out when I tried to open the bag. The robe had several short hairs on it. Looked like pet hairs. I think this had previously been worn and returned. However, I got this at a great price and have decided to keep it. I will have to launder it before wearing it. Very disappointed this time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanatt Long and comfy!
I am 5'8' and normally take a size 12 or 14 in misses. I ordered the raspberry color in a large and it was huge! Length was perfect but I could fit 2 of me in the width. I sent it back and reordered the medium, this one is still quite roomy but not as bad. So I would suggest order one size smaller. Love the softness, color, and length especially! I was frustrated with what are advertised as "long" robes that only came to my calf! This robe covers my ankles much needed in western NY! Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bettina Buy one - you won't be sorry!
I asked for this robe for a Christmas present two years ago in Navy. Last year when it came on sale I bought another one in Raspberry. If my size was available (S or XS) this year I would probably get another. You just can't beat it for warmth and it is just what I needed last winter with the weather we had in the Boston area. Anyone who does not take advantage of the sale price is nuts! Maybe the one I purchased last year is not quite as thick as the Navy blue, but it is still fine. Good job, LLB.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Thebestforless Soo soft!
I am 5'5", 122 lbs and ordered the M because no S was available and of course it was huge. I then ordered the S in this years version (same robe but not on sale). The new S is from a much scratchier fleece and tho it fits; it's on the skimpy side.....the belt is much too narrow. I am considering taking in this M since I sew and can do it.....call me crazy but I am very picky about my robe that I almost live in all winter.

Very soft and warm. Bright Navy is kinda dull color, but the Dark Rasberry is cheery. 5'3" and 145 lbs and the Petite Medium was perfect. Highly recommend. Nice fleece.

Rated 4 out of 5 by merrymaker Lovely color
The emerald teal is brighter than pictured and the raspberry a bit darker. Both are lovely colors. I took off a star because I am not crazy about the fleece fabric-- its soft and comfortable, but not sure how it will hold up. Since I bought these on sale, that is not a big issue though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LMSWCASAC Cotten Candy is Dandy
I ordered the Winter Fleece Robe, Wrap-Front in Mountain lilac because I wanted a robe in a shade of purple. I'm particular about color and lilacs are purple, not cotton candy pink. There's no mistaking that it is certainly not lilac. "Just so you know". I'm keeping the robe because it fits and I like it. It's a classic wrap around robe design. I have two other LLBean fleece robes in the same style.. One is lightweight for chilly spring and autumn mornings and the other is heavier & keeps me warm during our cold NY winters. This one is somewhere in between. I think it will be my favorite robe. These robes have good size patch pockets, side loops to hold the belt in place and the Petite Large is just the right length for my size 14/16, 5'3" frame, Can you ask for more in a winter robe than to fit and keep you warm?
Color wrong, everything else right.
